Patriots Wildcat Offense?

I know. I know. Don't go jumping all over me for asking the question.
We have Julian Edelmen who was "turned" into a receiver only this year. As a college QB, Edelmen averaged 265.8 total yards per game in passing and rushing.
114.2 rushing average
It would seem to me, why not add the Wildcat option into the Patriots arsenal to keep better defenses on their toes (like the Jets). The Jets & Miami had success with it when used appropriately on plays. Edelmen seems more perfectly built for a Wildcat than any other player in the NFL due to his athleticism. And the guy can catch passes, which makes him a constant on-field threat in how he'd be used.
Just something I wondered about the entire 2009 season of the Wildcat option.
